Diwali or Deepavali is one of the most popular Indian festival. At many places, there are special vacations in schools and colleges. So it is usually a good time to meet friends, go for picnics or small outings and overall celebrate Diwali with your family. It is also a good time to meet your old friends or just relax at your home and read a good book.

This year Diwali is on November 14, 2020. Wishing all my friends and readers of the blog, a Happy Diwali. I hope this Diwali brings prosperity, peace and wisdom in your life.

The most important thing is wisdom because how we deal with any situation depends upon our intelligence. So while we are praying prosperity, wealth or peace also ask for wisdom so that we can deal with life situations wisely.
